I think he is refering to the total change of interface of the unix
libraries. The changes are very positive, but since they are not backwards
compatible, users don't like them at first.


However the change was announced over 4 years ago, and _really_ needed, the
old linux RTL being very linux/x86 specific and with typing dating back to
linux 1.1.x. (e.g. a lot of unix types still being 16-bit etc)
